When Rain Catches You By Surprise, RainScarf Has Got You Covered

RainScarf

Don’t let rain catch you by surprise again. Of course, you could carry an umbrella or raincoat with you at all times, but that doesn’t sound very practical or convenient. What you can get instead is the RainScarf. It’s a dual-purpose scarf that has a pleasant surprise on the inside, which comes in especially handy when rain suddenly creeps up on you: a hoodie.

Just wear it like you would wear a regular scarf. When it starts to drizzle, just transform it into a partial raincoat by flipping it inside out from either end. The inside is made from a nylon water-resistant fabric shell, so you’re sufficiently protected, along with whatever gadgets you choose to keep under it while you scramble for shelter.

High Tide Heels

high_tide_heels

I have a friend who goes to the beach in high heels. Really. I know. But hey, I don’t judge. Much. The point is I thought of her when I saw these shoes. They’ve been around for a few years, but I only now found out about them. They’re called High Tide Heels and appear to have been an art exhibit by Paul Schietekat. They’re not for sale, and according to him, not wearable. I still think my friend should have a go in them because at least then she’d have somewhat of an excuse to wear heels on the beach.

Hello Kitty Contact Lenses: I See Kitties In Your Eyes

Hello Kitty Contacts2

Some contact lenses are corrective so folks can get 20/20 vision again without the glasses. Others are purely cosmetic, making pupils appear larger than normal so its wearers can take on a more doll-like appearance.

Then there are those that transform its wearers look completely: changing the color of their pupils, making it appear like slits, even–or making it look like there’s an image of Hello Kitty on their eyeballs. I kid you not: Hello Kitty contact lenses actually exist.

Plexus is a Shirt For All Occasions

Plexus

The Plexus is the T-shirt of the future. This futuristic concept design was created by Vernon Chen and Joanne Lim Jin Xuan, who both imagined that the shirts of the future will be “held together by pixelated nano-particles.” These shirts will be highly interactive with the wearer’s surroundings and will morph and change to match the occasion, going from a casual shirt to a formal one within seconds. This feature is attributed to the “opening and closing [of] its louvre-like pixels.”

So a shirt with a coat-and-tie design isn’t exactly formal or proper work attire, but if everyone’s going to be wearing this thing in the future, then that probably won’t be an issue. Of course, such material doesn’t exist yet and the technology to actually come up with this type of shirt is probably still decade away. But it’s still a pretty interesting concept. don’t you think?

You can watch a video highlighting the many features of the Plexus after the break.

USB Locket is For Files That Are Close to Your Heart

USB Locket

Why put just one picture in your locket when you can put hundreds, even thousands? I don’t mean in the old-fashioned sense though, because there’s no way a locket can hold a hundred tiny cut-up pictures of your loved ones. What you can do is save these photos onto a USB drive, which you’ll then put snugly inside the USB Locket. Obviously, you’re not limited to just storing pictures in the drive. Save videos, important documents, crucial contracts, and other files that you might need or can’t do without.

The USB Locket is available in silver or in 24-karat gold-plated brass and comes with a 2-gigabyte USB drive. It’s available online for $200.

Women Fashionably Dressed as Web Browsers

Women Browsers

 

These women are web browsers, personified. Inspired by the logos of various web browsers, photographer Viktorija Pashuta came up with this creative series of women dressed up in outfits that bear the same color palette on the logos. From Internet Explorer and Safari to Firefox and Google Chrome, each model is totally rocking their browser looks.

Internet Explorer is my least favorite browsers, although I love this browser’s fashion ensemble best. On the other hand, I don’t care much for Google Chrome’s look, although it’s the only browser I use these days. Now isn’t that ironic?

Hit the break to check out each of the images in the gallery up close.

The Bloody Cleaver Ring is Bloody Awesome

Bloody Cleaver Ring

This is the one ring that’ll shock most people when they see it. (Aside from a wedding ring, that is, but this kind of ring is more of a good surprise than a scary, gory one…)

The Cleaver Ring isn’t delivered all bloodied up, so you can wear it clean if you want. But if you prefer to spice things up, turn more heads, and maybe even shock your grandma when you go visit her this weekend, then smear some blood red dye all over the edges and on your fingers and throw in a few squeaks of pain in there for good measure.
